Other questions in this quiz

2. What is the ventromedial prefrontal cortex important for?

  • Preventing information from interfering with processing
  • How to interact appropriately with others and objects and establish links between stimuli and actions
  • Selection of desired behaviour and information
  • Creating a mental model of the world. Ability to recognise and create rules for behaviour generalisable across contexts

3. Are SZ patients impaired on no-go trials?

  • Yes
  • No

4. What is 'Default mode' behaviour?

  • When inhibition of spontaneous movement has not yet been learned
  • When regulation and maintenance of posture has not yet been learned
  • When inhibition of automatic processing has not yet been learned
  • When inhibition of controlled processing has not yet been learned

5. What is 'perseveration' shown in patients with DLPFC damage?

  • Cant create rules which generalise across contexts. e.g in Wisconsin card task will always use previously learned rule for sorting
  • Continue to use previously learned rules not from an inability to switch. e.g in Wisconsin card task will always use previously learned rule for sorting
  • Use a new rule on each trial reflecting an inability to learn. Not from an inability to switch e.g on Wisconsin card task will show random behaviour with a seemingly different rule each time
  • Only create generalised rules which are not applied to behaviour, e.g on Wisconsin card task will show random behaviour with a seemingly different rule each time
